. the republican party is in a distinctly different place. my question is marco rubio is out there with his plan. there's a sort of general circling of the wagon, but practically speaking in washington, is a house republican caucus going to vote -- move forward legislation that offers a path to citizen shi? >> it's a great question. you want to see the video game ber moving simultaneously, but i think people should be heartened by what happened today. there was a rush to put a face on immigration reform. you don't rush to back something that you think is going down in flames. you want to be associated with it. the fact that the senators jumped ahead of the president on this is a good sign, and, you know, john mccain knows this very well. he knows it firsthand. he in 2008 had to abandon some of the positions in order to win the republican primary. it cost him dearly. he is a living embodiment. to your point about whether it's good or not that they had a moral enlightenment. tloo whether they actually did. >> who cares? this is called democracy, and the fact that more voters now want you to do som
. that is a lot of how this is being perceived, the optics of being questioned by a rand paul or a marco rubio. hillary clinton answering their questions. rand paul really taking the toughest shot at her, as opposed to marco rubio. but is this all about cleaning up and leaving on a good note from the secretary of state position? >> well, i think for the secretary, i think this is about being forthright and very direct about what happened, what needs to be fixed, and where do you go from here. it's very seldom in american politics that a politician or a leader takes responsibility, and she did that very forcefully and very clearly, but then she also did something, again, sometimes lacking. where do we go from here, what steps do we need to take, that's what i think is more impressive. >> our power panel for today, thank you. i thank all of you. we're going to be right back. stick around. ♪ ooh baby, can i do for you today? ♪ [ female announcer ] need help keeping your digestive balance? align can help. only align has bifantis, a patented probiotic that naturally helps maintain your digestiv
: today, marco rubio grilling secretary of state clinton about security for americans in libya long before the september 11th attack. were his questions answered by the secretary of state? we spoke with senator rubio a short time ago. >> the part i wants today focus on how it's possible you have an interview with the prime minister, and the consulate is not raised to an alert. air the secretary of state and your staff isn't coming to you and say we have a problem. 200 attacks and britain pulled out of benghazi and how weren't there discussion abouts these topics, the answer is either the meetings happened or they didn't and we have a problem in the state department how information flows. so to me, it's not just about assigning blame, it's figuring out what went wrong internally so this never happens again. >> did you get at that answer. i think what we found out is that secretary clinton met with the prime minister and the issue of security was not touched, but not deeply, again, i don't understand how that's possible. >> in october of 2011 or-- >> both, october of 2011 she visited libya a
of the senators who might be in a 2016 frame of mind, marco rubio, rand paul, perhaps, they also did not serve with hillary clinton as a senator. so the tone might be different there. there's a lot of respect on both sides of the aisle from those senators who did know her personally, while she was a member of the u.s. senate. chris? >> well, you've set it up pretty well there, it seems, because you've got a very formidable political presence there. hillary clinton, we just looked at the new numbers on her, she's three to one popular. do you think that will make the republican critics a bit hesitant today? >> i think there is a sense of wanting to tread carefully with respect to secretary clinton. if it were a different head of a department, you might see a much tougher go. later this afternoon on the house side, there might not be quite that sense of decorum, if you will. but certainly, she is a prominent figure. we all saw what the problems with being the sort of invincible front-runner were in 2008, so maybe those poll numbers aren't all that helpful. but this will be a key, key thing to wat
clinton is being talked about big time in the democratic side, two republican senators, marco rubio and rand paul also talking about it. i've talked to rand paul myself. he has not denied that he's not thinking about it. listen to the way he addressed hillary clinton. >> i think you accept the culpability for the worst tragedy since 9/11 and i really mean that. had i been president at the time and i found that you did not read the cables from benghazi, you did not read the cables from ambassador stevens, i would have relieved you of your post. i think it's inexcusable. >> reporter: so you saw there, pretty pointed against hillary clinton, also saying that it's a failure of leadership. trying to sort of give her a backhanded compliment, appreciating her taking responsibility but clearly laying the blame at her feet himself. she made clear, she didn't really actually answer his question. it was clear she sort of -- the look on her face told it all. but she said, i'm secretary of state. we have thousands of people working in our building. it's their job to read the cables and that real
testified before the senate foreign relations committee before marco rubio was born. >> 1941. >> this is a job for which he is prepared, and as you know, the last four years, he has donnie number of missions. some we know about. some we don't. on behalf of this administration when it comes to foreign relations. >> kelly o'donnell, i want to ask you about guns because greg sergeant in the washington post is blogging that joe manchin has told a west virginia radio station that he is working with others, with democrats and republicans, on the universal background check. also on closing the gun show loophole. joe manchin, who, of course, campaigned for the office holding a rifle. this is a big change. >> well, for joe manchin, this is a critical time. he was just reelected to a full-term. he has a bit of breathing room, and this is an issue that he is willing to really try and find some ground. he will talk about his a-plus rating with the national rifle association, and a state like west virginia has a long history and kind of cultural tie to guns so, he understands it from that
marco rubio probably touched on it. i support and agree with the principles he laid out as far as earned legalization. making sure people don't cut in line but fixing the problem. we did reform in '86 and again in '96. it's a system that's broken that needs fixing. and many of us who have been involved in this issue over the years. immigration is a good thing. that's what america is. it's a melting pot. we think this is good. we need to make sure it works. i think there are republicans and democrats, many of us are talking to each other, that can come together with a good solution to make sure that this problem is fixed. once and for all. and i think those rubio principles do a really good job of adhering to the founding principles, respecting the rule of law, and respecting those who came here for a better life. >> and do you see that getting done this year? >> i do. that's one of the areas where i feel that i think the president has a big speech coming up. the question that many of us are asking, republicans and democrats, is he looking to play politics or does he want to solve the pro
, marco rubio said that women are already in combat and we should put the best soldiers forward regardless of their gender. just that juxtaposition of women getting infections in the ditch, and here we go the republican party. >> i take all of my advice from newt gingrich. >> and all of the bodily functions. >> and marital, too. >> yes. >> look, i'm thrilled that servicewomen will have equal career opportunities to advance in the armed force, because the military is just that it is another employer, and we should never ever condone employment discrimination in america by any way, but by the same tone my excitement is tempered by the b abhorrent violence against women in the military. and we are talking about a high chance of being assaulted by one of your own than being killed by the enemy. >> that is where we are going to go after the break, this question of how there is a different combat for military women, and the fight against sexual assault when we return. >>> the new expansion of combat roles was not the only message to come out of washington about women in the military this week.
about possibly running for president. marco rubio, and rand paul. they prefer a more muscular foreign policy, and rand paul, of course the son of ron paul, thinking the u.s. is involved in too things, it too many crisis. we have a number of new members on the house committee, and they have been warned, as dana barb reported this morning, noted they had to be told by the chairman of the house committee to be respectful. he was concerned, perhaps, that some of them were going to try to make a names for themselves perhaps inappropriately. >> and the secretary is now being seated. you see the photographers there. dana bash is on capitol hill, walk us through it, the senator from new jersey will open, and then what happens. >> that's right, he will have a statement, and then the ranking republican will as well, and then we will hear from secretary clinton. generally these hearings go on and on. and bob menendez is starting now. >> let's listen. >> since the full senate has not passed the committee resolution officially seating members, i want to ask unanimous consent of members to particip
small. i think marco rubio -- i thought he asked his questions with respect to the secretary of the state of the united states of america. to those men who felt attacking hillary clinton was the best way to go, i think they lost a great opportunity to try to help to get to the point of where we are at, what we need to do, and how we can go forward to protecting our people overseas. host: we have louis. caller: i personally do not believe -- i do not agree with the kentucky caller. i thought secretary clinton was arrogant as usual. she dodged a lot of questions. she is exactly like her husband, spout out a bunch of percentages and things like that that nobody checks the facts. i think the media is beyond belief. that is beside the point. hillary clinton is absolutely without a doubt a bipolar. she travels a lot. she never stays in one place. what good has she actually done a in the four years she has been in power? i think she is an absolute horrible person. when she got on tv and said, we came, we saw, and killed like a crazy person, i thought if george bush would have done t
national committee, i knew that she went against the machine in florida and openly supported marco rubio over charlie crist, something she was taken to task for. we all now know sharon was right. [applause] she traveled throughout her state to develop -- to republicans of ethnicity before diversity was a popular word. sharon has fought for those who did not have a voice within the republican party, and as a conservative woman i tried to keep up with her. i tried to do things that emulate everything she was doing. she has inspired many to work harder, smarter, and more effectively, especially those who wanted to get republicans elected. since becoming co-chair, she has been to more than 43 states and she has included in her stops large cities and small cities, including a small town in washington where i'm from, where we grow the best apples, cherries, pears, and winery's. she has shown that every state and county is important to the success of electing republicans. she has visited victory centers and even joined the volunteers of phone banking and doorbell ing. she helped encourage women
